Driving back to work I noticed a FedEx coming in for landing when out of nowhere a Delta jet appeared. First thought was they were on approach for the runways on either side of the airport, but the Delta plane just kept getting closer to FedEx. They were very close (my guess, less than 1/8 of a mile) when the FedEx jet made a very hard left turn circle around then landed.

Along same line-you all remember the Air France flight from Brazil to Paris that went down in severe weather off coast of South America, right? Okay, pitot tubes froze up, which means plane cannot tell airspeed. Which means NO AUTOPILOT. Pilot is asleep, long flight, scheduled in, not a big deal. Juniors keep trying to make autopilot come back on by trying this, that, other. In Meantime, plane is sinking. Finally someone woke up pilot, he comes in to cockpit JUST as plane drops a wing and heads straight down into Atlantic.

First rule of every pilot: FLY THE PLANE.

Nowadays, Pilots don't fly, they manage resources.

I would say someone is in trouble because of that incident.
